FiOS Internet

 Connecting your Nintendo DS to your wireless network
Before you begin: You’ll need your network's SSID, encryption type (WPA2, WPA or WEP), and encryption key. You can find this information in one of three ways:
  • Review the sticker on the back of your router or gateway. The sticker displays the SSID and encryption key information. By default, some routers and gateways are configured as WPA. You may have to choose WEP if the device you wish to connect is not accepting WPA mode.
  • Use In-Home Agent to view your settings: You can access In-Home Agent on a computer that is already connected to Verizon Online. Within In-Home Agent, go to the Networking tab and select Retrieve SSID and WEP/WPA key.
  • Log in to your router or gateway from a computer already connected to your wireless network. The instructions you follow depend on the type of router or gateway you use to connect to Verizon High Speed Internet.

Nintendo product support is outside the normal Verizon Support boundaries, but additional information is available through:

1) Verizon Premium Technical Support

2) Verizon Forums

3) The manufacturer of your game console

To connect a Nintendo DS to your wireless home network:

  1. Insert a wireless compatible game into your Nintendo DS and turn the unit on.

  2. Navigate to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings screen. You may need to review your game's user manual to find how to access this screen because it varies between games.

  3. Select Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection Settings.

  4. Select an available connection. "None" will display under the name of the connection if it is available.

  5. Select Search for an Access Point.

  6. The name of your wireless access point will display. If no access point is displayed, you are out-of-range of your router and will need to move closer to the router.

  7. If there is a blue lock that is unlocked, tap the name of your access point and then tap OK.

  8. If there is a red lock that is locked, tap the name of the access point and enter the WEP encryption key for your network. Tap OK to save your settings.

  9. If there is a gray lock that is locked, your router's network security settings are not supported by the Nintendo DS. You will need to switch to WEP or WPA encryption or remove the security setting when connecting with the Nintendo DS.
